The Whistler was one of radio's most popular mystery dramas, with a 13-year run from May 16, 1942 until September 22, 1955. If it now seems to have been influenced explicitly by The Shadow, The Whistler was no less popular or credible with its listeners, the writing was first class for its genre, and it added a slightly macabre element of humor that sometimes went missing in The Shadow's longer-lived crime stories. At night, glowing car radios illuminated dashboards, and drivers traveled dark highways while the Whistler began his ominous narration: I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes, I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak. That opening was intoned along with the echo of footsteps and Wilbur Hatch's haunting 13-note theme, whistled weekly by Dorothy Roberts for 13 years. Bill Forman had the title role of host and narrator. Others who portrayed the Whistler at various times were Gale Gordon (Lucille Ball's future television nemesis), Joseph Kearns (the future Mr. Wilson on the television version of Dennis the Menace, (later played by Gordon), Marvin Miller (soon the announcer for The Bickersons and, later, on television, Michael Anthony on The Millionaire), Bill Johnstone and Everett Clarke. The stories followed an effective formula in which a person's criminal acts were typically undone by their own stupidity. Ironic twist endings were common, as they had been on the show that most obviously influenced it, The Shadow. The Whistler narrated, often commenting directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective. Unlike Suspense, The Whistler never featured any major Hollywood stars, but the quality of writing and performance made it a radio mainstay.
